Action man Gerard Butler to sue driver after car collision

Action man film star Gerard Butler is suing the driver who knocked him off his motorbike.

The actor is seeking damages from the woman who crashed into him, fracturing his foot.

The accident was in Los Angeles in 2017.

Court documents show Scottish born Butler has accused the driver of “negligently pulling her vehicle off the curb” before “cutting across lanes of traffic directly in front of him” in her 2016 Mercedes Benz.

He claims, “the impact caused him to be ejected from his motorcycle and tumble up over her vehicle and back onto the pavement.”

Shortly after the incident, the 49-year-old actor said the crash had made him realise how “precious” his life is because he could’ve ended up dead if he had landed wrong.”
